My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 3 months. The first two months I was just so excited that he agreed to start trying, I was pretty naive about the whole process. I was not very knowledgeable about the woman's reproductive cycle, ovulation, fertile periods, etc. Now I'm at month 3, and I think I did a better job of maximizing my chances of getting pregnant this time around.
My cycles vary between 28 and 31 days, so I'm expecting my AF sometime between Saturday, February 12 and Tuesday, February 15. However, I have experienced some symptoms the past couple of weeks that give me the feeling that I might be pregnant:
- My boobs aren't sore, but they are bigger. Also, my left areola is getting wider, and I notice that the little bumps around both nipples are becoming more pronounced/bigger.
- This last week, I have noticed some vaginal discharge that is clear and non-odorous. It's not like EWCM, and it's not the type of discharge you get prior to ovulation either (thicker). I've read that this can be a sign of pregnancy as the cervical mucous plug is starting to form.
- I have also noticed that I have been tired. One night I did some vacuuming and light housework and suddenly felt exhausted at 8pm! I sat down and watched tv until bedtime, and then I couldn't sleep that night! I have also noticed generel tiredness prior to this, but am not sure if I was tired because I am pregnant or just because...
- Yesterday, I woke up feeling queasy at 6:30am. I was able to eat a few crackers in the morning and had chicken teriyaki and rice at lunch while my husband ate sushi
The queasiness did not go away until I finally laid down for a nap, and then I was good for the rest of the day/evening. Today I feel normal, no queasiness to speak of.
I realize I am in the 2WW period, but just wanted to bounce these symptoms off of someone other than my husband! Comments are welcome!
